Friðrik Helgi is a 14-year-old wonderful kid with a rare immune disease (HIES). He's a humorist, loves computergames and is a loving friend.
Because of the disease he gets very serious infections across the body. He has in his short lifetime undergone over 200 operations to clean the lymph nodes that have grown to the size of a lemon. Now he´s in Newcastle, England, in bone marrow transplant. The transplant will unfortunately not cure the disease though the symptoms diminishes
Friðrik loves to travel, but due to the disease it has been difficult. We hope that with the coming season he will be able to travel more with his family and enjoy life like a 14-year-old boy is supposed to.
